Han terra-cotta warriors

The unearthed figures in Hanyang Mausoleum are very striking. They have only a third of a real person's size, about 60 cm in height. They are naked and have no arms. According to research, these pottery figurine all dressed in all kinds of beautiful costumes while finished; and at that time, their arms are wooden. However, after one thousand years of wind and frost, their clothes and wood arm have been decayed, only leaving the bare and incomplete body. A part of the terra-cotta warriors are women, which mostly are delicate, pretty and shapely; but some have strange features. Compared with the solemn and respectful Qin Terracotta Army, the Han figures seem to be gentle and calm, which is a reflection of the peaceful social atmosphere in "Rule of Wen and Jing" of Han Dynasty.
